The invention relates to a method of estimating the cooling capacity of liquids and presents a way to Express control of the adequacy of the cooling capacity of the liquid for any of the developed devices using different liquids, cooling high-heat components.

There is a method of estimating the cooling capacity of liquids on a special model plants flow type. He is to simulate the flow of the liquid under study in the most tallapragada section of cooling channel cooling device (Bolshakov GF Physico-chemical principles of the use of fuels and oils. Theoretical foundations of chemmotology at. - Novosibirsk: Nauka, 1987, str-92).

The disadvantage of this method is the lack of criteria dependences satisfactorily determine the conditions of the simulation of the processes occurring in the real models. Features cooling processes depend generally on physico-chemical and operational properties of the cooler, the speed of its flow, the initial temperature and the speed of its achievements, and therefore, the chemical composition at the entrance to the considered site tract, the material flow of the channel, the means of processing and surface condition, the geometry of the heat sink surface and the nature of the flow of the coolant. Under taccom modern flowing heat exchange units is the many of the above factors are equal for various parties investigated coolant that causes fuzzy cooling capacity for various parties coolant in the field of convective heat transfer. Further heating of the test section on units flow type detects the increase of the scatter of the experimental points (for various parties coolant) depending on the wall temperature on the specific heat flow and stratification of the corresponding approximating curves, which leads to the impossibility reliable estimates of the cooling capacity of the cooling liquid.

This phenomenon is explained by the change of physico-chemical state of the fluid due to the beginning of the bubble pseudocumene, and the temperature corresponding to the beginning of the intense heat turning cooler, the so-called "destruction", the end products of which among others are solids generated during the decomposition of the cooler, and during its reaction with the impurities included in its composition. The reaction can join and intermediate products of the reactions of decomposition of the cooler. These products, which are deposited in the form of consobrina formations on the walls of the cooling tract, significantly increased thermal is soprotivlenie heat-release surface, changing as education sediment layer, its accumulation and possible entrainment by a turbulent flow. The result is overheating of the surface to be cooled and its destruction, which in turn can lead to violation of the workflow in the sample technique.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a comparative methodology for estimating the cooling capacity of liquid in stationary conditions compared with the sample fluid, the required cooling capacity is installed in field tests. Quantitative quality control of coolant on the proposed method correlates with physically reasonable value of the temperature of the beginning of intensive thermal decomposition of the coolant.

This goal is achieved by the fact that the comparative determination of the quality of the coolant is conducted on experimentally installed in static conditions, the dependency of the temperature of the heat-release surface from the time when the last temperature avalanche collapse of a cooling liquid on a hot surface, without fluid flow, in comparison with the same dependence, but for the sample of the coolant, a sufficient cooling capacity is installed.

Setup that implements the proposed method estimates the cooling capacity of the LM the bones, consists of the following main parts (see drawing):

- capacity for the analyzed fluid displacement 350 cm3designed for working pressure PP=16 MPa ("bomb"), pos.2;

- a step-down transformer for heating the experimental tube electric current, 3;

regulating transformer, pos.17,

three tanks with a volume of V=0.5 l each for filling and draining the liquid under study, pos.4,9,16;

- a can of compressed nitrogen for pressurization, pos.6.

All elements of the unit is made from a material IN, as the sealing material is a fluoroplastic-4 and aluminum. The plant is equipped with shut-off, pressure relief and drain valve.

Fuel element (experimental phase)inside the working tank and immersed in the test liquid, is heated by an alternating electric current tube diameter of 3.0×1.5 mm, and the length of the heated part 400 mm, made from steel 18CR10NITI (to study the catalytic effect of structural material for the process may use other materials and alloys). As the fuel element can also be used membrane in the measuring cell of special construction, having two cavities.

Experimental section is equipped with two thermocouples HC: on the inner surface in the center of the tube (the temperature value T2) and 4-5 mm above the outer surface of the tube, directly in the liquid (temperature T1).

The proposed method of assessment (test) quality of the coolant based on the fixing temperature increase of the inner surface of the tube by means of a thermocouple in time for xed values of electric power, providing virtually instantaneous temperature reaches the beginning of its destruction. The increase in thermal resistance, irrespective of its cause causes and the growth temperature of the inner surface of the element at a constant heat load due to the deterioration of heat exchange with the investigated liquid.

The principle of creating a test setup based on a static method, in contrast to dynamic, contributes to the solution of important problems: minimizing factors that affect the relationship heated surface-chemical conversion of fuel at high temperatures and pressures in contact with her. In traditional ("running") methods such factors very much, that does not allow us to establish the specific behavior of the actual component.

It should be noted that the proposed method comparative characterization of various parties fluids, providing a greater or lesser extent, the impact on the cooling properties, is intended to facilitate the process of rejection of various parties cooling fluid is involved in its production, storage and use. Thus, verification is the specific component composition (including microtrace), in one way or another affecting such traits as cooling capacity.

Since the proposed method is designed to generate conclusions "worse"to"better", the exact value of the temperature of the beginning of thermal decomposition does not matter, because at this stage it is not the aim of studying the process of heat exchange in the light of all history (e.g., decomposition). You only need to enter temperature mode, guaranteeing the flow of this process.

Permanently installed on-site heat load, excluding additional adjustment improves the accuracy of determining the rate of heating due to the elimination of possible methodological errors in the course of achieving a work area of the fixed temperature of the beginning of the destruction.

Thus, as the criterion (comprehensive index)characterizing OS coolant, offered the rate of internal heating surface of the heating element.

Processing of results of measurements can be carried out as follows. On the removed tape recorder is applied on scales of temperature and time scale, then set the initial "zero" time, with testwuide temperature T2. Tape recorder with 0.5 removed with the appropriate values of time and temperature T2.

The obtained temperature information (T2) and time are processed according to a special formula.

The data obtained depending on the temperature T2 higher than the temperature of thermal decomposition process by the method of least squares and obtain the parameters of the approximating straight line:

SUBSTANCE: method of determining thermo-oxidative stability of lubricating materials involves heating the lubricating material in the presence of air and mixing. Oxidised lubricating material is then collected. Oxidation process parameters are then photometered and determined using graphical curves. Two samples of the lubricating material of constant weight are tested separately with and without a catalyst. While heating, the two samples of lubricating material of constant weight are tested successively with and without a catalyst, stirred while periodically varying testing temperature from temperature at the onset of oxidation and maximum temperature. Temperature is the lowered from maximum temperature to temperature at the onset of oxidation over a constant period of time. After each testing temperature, with and without a catalyst, the samples are weighed, the weight of the evaporated sample and evaporation number are then determined as a ratio of the weight of the evaporated sample to the weight of the remaining sample. By photometering, the light flux absorption factor with and without catalyst is determined, the thermo-oxidative stability factor is determined as a sum of light flux absorption factor and evaporation number. Further, the influence coefficient of the catalyst KVK on oxidative processes is determined using the formula KVK=KK/K, where KK and K are thermo-oxidative stability factors of samples of the lubricating material with and without catalyst, respectively. A curve of the influence coefficient of the catalyst on the oxidative processes versus the testing time is then plotted, and thermo-oxidative stability of the lubricating materials is then determined from values of the influence coefficent of the catalyst on the curve. If KVK>1, thermo-oxidative stability is falling, and if KVK<1 thermo-oxidative stability is increasing.

EFFECT: high information content of the method of determining thermo-oxidative stability of oxidation and evaporation processes during periodic variation of the testing temperature.
